Coronavirus Update

Updated 8th January 2021

We are excited to be celebrating our 25th anniversary throughout 2021, and to mark the occasion we will be taking a look back and sharing with you some of the amazing things that have happened over the last 25 years to bring us to where we are now.

The Trust was established in early 1996 to deliver the vision of Sara Lee - that local people affected by cancer and other life threatening illness could, as she did, live life to the full despite their illness.

Sara’s Story:

Trust Services - Urgent Update under Tier 4
Whilst current restrictions mean that we are currently unable to provide in person Complementary Therapy services, we continue to provide a range of remote based services including counselling, group yoga (beginner and maintenance classes) and mindfulness.

Service user feedback over the last year has highlighted that our telephone and online services can often provide a lifeline for those who are isolated due to the restrictions of their illness, mobility or caring role.

For more information about our services please contact us on 01424 456 608 or email

Short video clips about the Trust and its work can be found on our YouTube Channel.

Wash your hands. Cover your face. Make space

We cannot emphasise strongly enough the importance of hand washing on a regular basis, such as after you blow your nose, cough or sneeze or before you eat or handle food, as well as sanitising your hands if there are no hand washing facilities available. 


Every aspect of the services and people I have dealt with have just been amazing. My only regret is that I didn't use the Sara Lee Trust at an early stage, as I feel it would of helped my mental state
